A Colorado shooting involving rapper ScHoolboy Q after a concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre was not a random act of violence, police said Saturday.

"This is not just a coincidence. We think there is probably more to it than that," said Jacki Kelley, a spokeswoman for the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office. "It does seem to be more targeted than random."

ScHoolboy Q, whose real name is Quincy Matthew Hanley, was not hurt in the shooting at the historic concert venue about 10 miles west of Denver. Three other people in the vehicle with ScHoolboy Q sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

No arrests have been made, but Kelley said investigators have received numerous tips and are trying to determine a motive for the attack in a parking lot at the outdoor space, where the Beatles and Grateful Dead have performed and U2 filmed "Under a Blood Red Sky."

The suspect, described as 6 feet tall and carrying a rifle, escaped after the shooting, Kelley said.

The SUV in which ScHoolboy Q was riding fled east from the venue toward Denver before being stopped by police, Kelley said. All of the SUV's occupants were briefly detained while police checked to make sure it contained only victims.

Investigators were also asking concertgoers to share with them any video recordings made backstage or in the merchandise sales area known as the Trading Post from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m.

On Friday, ScHoolboy Q said on Twitter that he was OK.

"im str8...... dont trip," he wrote. His next tweet said. "and IM STILL GOING TO ICELAND 2MORROW, & NEW YORK WEDNESDAY."

ScHoolboy Q is from Los Angeles. His most recent album, "Oxymoron," debuted at No. 1 earlier this year and reflects his life as a father and former gang member.
